I have used Android, IOS , Symbian and now Iam using BB 9700. In my opinion BB has its own class, own users. They are the one providing the experience of the track pad and qwerty keypad to its customers.According to met he only drawback currently is battery life, RAM( as its laggs)(9700 has a 256MB RAM)and skype. The keypad is just lovely, I just love typing with it the whole day, its very convenient!. Ill be switching soon to 9900 (because the specifications is higher up-til now 1.2GHz with 768MB RAM) to experience OS 7.1 with a touch screen after that ill surely go to BB Q10 when it gets cheaper. RIM surely knows what their track pad means to the users. By removing it they are switching the existing users to the next level with touchscreen experience. The Q10 is equipped with heavy specificatiosn not up to the mark of ANDROIDS/WINDOWS/IOS, but remember its not just the hardware, but the software utilizing the hardware. BB does'nt requires quad-core to run its OS smooth just like Iphones. Its the OS's compatibility with the hardware. Q10 is equipped with Dual-Core 1.5, 2GB RAM (which is the only issue now to avoid lagging) and it also supports skype. With a 8MP back and 2MP front is the best decision. Smartphones nowadays are just getting bigger with the latest technology, thats good as we are moving towards a new era of future. I respect personal choices and preferences. I have OIS and Android users at home I know everything about their phone and love the OS on both the phones. It has its own class. Games, Apps, Screen Size, Quality Videos/Pictures you name it and you have everything you need in your smartphone on the go. But I personally prefer tablets for those purpose. A smartphone should be smart and Q10 surely is. They legacy of the keypad is still there. I love my BB as mentioned earlier ill switch to BB9900 soon. I love the keypad and the track pad as BB gave us that opportunity to experience it. If they are removing the trackpad and getting all the existing users to a new platform of touch with the keypad is a real invention, thats what I personally believe. Alot of you may not agree with my statement but in the end thats personal choice and again I respect everyone's personal opinion. I mean all we as BB users lacking now is video calling,RAM,limited third-party apps and ofcourse new UI. BBOS10 is surely a new innovation. I would love to experience it and will always be a BB User. Appreciate ya'll time. :)
Just got my today and very disappointed ?
I sending messages and mails in france , English and Russian - now proper lay out and you don't have on screen keyboard . It's impossible to send proper text in Russian , because you don't see letters .
This phone is way overpriced .
Hi all, Can someone help please? I love the look of the Q10 and feel however, I want to buy this phone on sim free and will be on PAYG, do I still need to have a seperate BB account package to use the BBM etc or can I use the BB features without having to subscribe with the network? Thanks all.
the BB Q10 is without a doubt the worst phone possible. BB left all the good things about the Bold behind. my advice to a person using a BOLD and consdering a Q10 - don't. I am returning mine after 6 days and buying an iphone. bb Q10 is garbage

i got bb q10 it looks nice elegant and software wise its ok little difficult but i think with time it will be ok BUT bb they have quality control or no i think no cause my q10 keyboard backlight is uneven lower raw is intense light while the rest is dim compared to it i think this is a defect in the hardware which is a shame the device is expensive and should not have this short come iam living in kuwait i bought it from authorized dealer just yesterday and return it back today cause of this defect which iam not accepting and they said will see and maybe will change will ask and i had to wait iam really angry they should change it on the spot. its really shame that a big company like bb till now in 2013 still releasing a device which pass quality control with silly defect like that , after a long time of making keyboards and this device together with z10 suppose to be giving the company a push i think down not up
stha, 26 May 2013don't buy Q10 if using Iphone5, they are more or less the sameThey're not the same at all. Q10 has a faster browser and the best keyboard ever made by bb.
AnonD-148541, 23 May 2013The q10's os is newer and it is really awesome. Everything can be done with just a single swip... moreJust one questions...
Does the what's app work on Q10 or no?
Because the is the only reason holding me back from buying it.
Regret to bought this phone for the below reasons:
1.) most of the android apps are not able to install on these devices. I could say probably 70%. Even the most happening apps wechat would not able to install under this device.
2.) No way to customize the LED notifications. Even there is a paid apps, but the customization was so limited.
3.) I am using BB9790 1 year ago and I finally decided to sell it due to the lack of apps compatibility. And i though BB should have improve better over the year, but everything remains the same.
4.) Blackberry, launch a phone without knowing the apps compatibility, in short, they are launching a powerful phone without any useful apps. This is funny to me, how about you guys?
5.) For those who are using this device, how will you do if you would like to change a notifications sound? manually go to media folder and pick up a single tone each time? Lack of user friendly. And also, they are only few tone less than 5 probably in the option.
6.) This phone cost about approximately USD700.00 in my area and is consider almost the most expensive phone in the current mobile phone market. For those who bough this device will end up feeling that you are buying the most expensive device with full of headache. Every time when a android user or apple ios user showing off their quality apps, I do not dare to even make any sound because I am sure it will not be available in the BB world.
No reasons for going blackberry anyway. For those keep claiming that the email is good, the bbm is good or bla bla, please stay back and think properly, android and ios can do this easily.
For security reasons? How many of you really know about the security? Is your stuffs that confidential?
Spending USD700.00 in return of headache, afraid of apps compatibility?
Make your own choice.
Please re-correct these thing..

Gunner, 27 May 2013Pls What type of battery does this phone use 2100 or 1800?Why don't you read the specifications instead of asking questions.
And What's App can be used on this fone for anybody that is too lazy to read the comments properly.
